Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was known for being fueled by her faith, and she is remembered for saying that her Jewish heritage and her occupation fit together symmetrically.
Ginsburg famously argued six gender discrimination cases before the Supreme Court -- winning five, all before she was appointed to the highest court.
She was reaching for equality based on sex, but also realized that religious freedom was not a great leap away.
Rabbi Sam Levine works at East Midwood Jewish Center. He found out about Ginsburg's passing at the end of their Friday night service.
"We had a long and emotional-packed service on Saturday morning," Levine said.
Justice Ginsburg's letter to the center hangs on the wall of a classroom.
The Brooklyn Municipal Building in Downtown Brooklyn will be named for Ginsburg.
